We had a fabulous time celebrating World Book Day this year. Everyone came to school dressed as their favourite book characters, including all the teachers! Can you remember what everyone came dressed as? The winning costume in our class was this one- well done!!!
We’d been doing maths this week linked to data handling and creating graphs so we decided to find out our favourite book. Everyone had a cube and voted for their favourite using their cube. We then made the cubes into towers to see which was the tallest. After that we turned the information we had collected into lots of different graphs which showed the same information in different ways. Can you see which our favourite was?
We had to turn our classroom door into our favourite book. We did it a little bit differently though. Although Oi Dog! was our favourite we made our door into Oi Frog! We decided that you couldn’t read Oi Dog! if you’ve not read Oi Frog! because, as Jayden pointed out, “the beginning of Oi Dog! is the end of Oi Frog!” We wanted to make sure everyone in school knew about the first book. Everyone worked really hard as a team to make the decorations for our door. Some children even had to write why they thought the book was hilarious, just like the sticker on the actual book cover.
Once we’d done our door we went for a walk round school to look at everyone else’s. Didn’t they do an amazing job? Can you see which ones School Council made the winner? Which one is your favourite?
We also all visited the School Library to get a book to take home. There were so many books to take home it was sometimes difficult to decide which one we wanted. Everyone chose the one they wanted and had it stamped before taking it home. We’re going to visit the School Library every Thursday if we’ve brought our book back.
What another great World Book Day!
How can you continue the learning at home?
- Read books together everyday. It is proven that reading everyday, just for ten minutes, makes children much better readers.
- Use your £1 World Book Day token to get either a free book or to get money off any book of your choice.
- Make sure your child returns their school library book so they can take another one each week and visit the Manor Top Library together regularly.
